Bridging the Gap: Spirituality and Sustainability in the Urban Context
Organized in cooperation with the InterSpiritual Centre of Vancouver Society
This roundtable is based on the conviction that meeting the challenges of urbanization requires policy approaches that are ethically and spiritually informed. It will showcase urban projects that are inspired by the principles articulated in the major Wisdom (i.e. faith, indigenous and spiritual) traditions of the world. Participants will engage the following questions: How do faith-based initiatives promote sustainability, inclusion and social cohesion in urban areas? How do sustainability-focused projects integrate spiritual perspectives? How do civic leaders articulate an integral vision of urban wellbeing that is informed by a spiritual understanding of human community?
